JODY HOUSER
A writer and third-generation geek, Jody Houser
received her MFA at Emerson College and
currently resides in Los Angeles where she focuses
on comics and screenwriting. She is the creator of
the webcomics “Cupcake POW!” and “Brickgirl &
Oscar” and a contributor to several comic
anthologies including Womanthology: Heroic, Dead
Roots and The Gathering. Links to her work can be

KATHRYN LAYNO
Kathryn is a freelance illustrator based in the
Philippines. She has worked on various sketch card
sets, some independent comic work as an illustrator
as well as coloring for comics since she started her
freelance career in 2007.
CHRISTINE ELLIS
Christine Ellis is a writer living in New York City.
She works mostly in film and television and
received her MFA in Dramatic Writing from NYU
Tisch Asia. She enjoys drinking wine in exotic
places and traveling the world on a budget slightly
bigger than a bread box, learning how to swear in
foreign languages, and getting lost everywhere she
goes. Her favorite novel of all time is the Count of
Monte Cristo (ask her about her copy). This is her
first time writing comics but she hopes it won't be
the last.
DEVIN GRAYSON
Best known as a mainstream comic book writer for
DC's Batman titles, Devin is also a novelist, video
game scripter, RPG enthusiast and essay writer. An
insulin-dependent diabetic since the age of fifteen,
Devin is the lucky partner of an amazing diabetic
alert dog, Cody, and a passionate volunteer for
Early Alert Canines. She is also an LGBTQ rights
advocate and a firm believer in the ability of fiction
to illuminate truth.
LINDSAY WALKER
Lindsay Walker always knew she was going to be
an artist. She grew up with a love for dinosaurs,
monsters, fantasy, scifi, cartoons and super-heroes.
Some of her biggest influences include Terry
Pratchett's Discworld, Labyrinth, Dark Crystal, Lord
of the Rings, The Phantom, Goon and Judge Dredd. She
has work published on The Phantom, Kolchak: Night
Stalker/Sherlock Holmes, Zombies Vs. Cheerleaders,
Voltron, Street Fighter and Darkstalkers. Lindsay is also
open about being transgender. She and her partner
Kimberley have been together for more than ten
years and have three daughters. Ariel, Heloise and
Evelyn. Their rainbow family have been looked up
to as an inspiration for some LGBT people.
Lindsay's official website is... www.puggdogg.com
CATHERINE MILLER
Catherine currently lives in Florida, and blames the
locale for the flights of fancy found in her
illustrative work. Her contribution to Womanthology
is her first experience with a major publisher,
having previously provided guest work for
independent comics. When not working on
freelance or personal projects, Catherine enjoys
perusing history books or playing the odd video
game. ELVA WANG
My name is Elva Wang, a freelance illustrator and
animator, who lives in Canada. Strongly influenced
by all the animations and comics around the world,
I chose to be an animator as my career. I love
drawing and can't live without it. Although I am
happy with doing concept and background for
animations, my life goal is to complete a comic that
I put all my effort in.
